People in Poland join nationwide job strike over top court’s abortion ruling after days of protests – ABC News

Hundreds of people are seen protesting in a Wroclaw street at night with red smoke above them. Several hold placards. The Women’s Strike, the key organizers of the protests over the past week, called the strike under the slogan: “We are not going to work.”

Rage over the court ruling, which would deny legal abortions to pregnant people even in cases where a child is sure to die upon birth, has been directed at the Roman Catholic church and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the ruling party leader and most powerful politician in the country.

Protesters entered churches on Sunday to disrupt Masses, confronted priests with obscenities and spray-painted church buildings.
